Tropics bring severe weather potential to Central Florida

Tropics bring severe weather potential to Central Florida”

The system could still be a tropical storm with winds above 39 miles per hour on Sunday morning over eastern North Carolina before moving back over water, forecasters said.

"Our region should be on the northwestern edge of the clouds and the precipitation associated with the system from late Saturday night into Sunday", the weather service said in its forecast discussion Friday.

In terms of economic impacts to the region, AccuWeather founder and CEO Dr. Joel N. Myers said, "No significant overall economic impact is expected", from the storm, but he added, "There will be some brief economic impact where heavy rains and coastal flooding occurs".

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1005 mb (29.68 inches).

Tropical storm warnings have been posted from Yankeetown, the Alabama-Mississippi line and from Grand Isle, Louisiana to the mouth of the Pearl River.

A Storm Surge Warning is in effect from Indian Pass to Clearwater Beach, Florida.

A Tropical Storm Warning means tropical storm conditions are possible within 48 hours.

Along the Florida coast from east of Apalachicola and around the Big Bend to near the Tampa area, unsafe storm surge is a significant threat. This is a life-threatening situation. The mayor has imposed a state of emergency to seize property and force people out if necessary. Residents in these areas should follow advice given by local officials. And unsafe rip currents are possible along the coast as Nestor approaches land Friday and Saturday.

Surge-related flooding depends on the relative timing of the surge and the tidal cycle, and can vary greatly over short distances. Isolated areas along the coast could see as much as 5 inches, according to the National Weather Service.

A weather disturbance moving toward the Southern United States with heavy rain and wind is expected to become a tropical storm Friday as it nears the Gulf Coast, forecasters said.

Nestor, the 14th named storm of the 2019 Atlantic hurricane season, is expected to remain a tropical storm as it moves north and east towards the Carolinas on Sunday and into the open Atlantic by Monday, where it could be swirling about 200 to 300 miles south of New Jersey.
